Interactions between climate variability and air pollution―A study of severe haze and large wildfires
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-11-03)
The drastically changing climate system plays a critical role in modulating emission and distribution conditions of air pollutants including greenhouse gases, aerosols, and tracer gases, while these air pollutants exert ...
Wildfires in earth system: Driver, transport and feedback
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2018-08-08)
Wildfires release large amounts of greenhouse gases, carbonaceous aerosols, and other pollutants, therefore having complex impacts on the earth climate, local weather, and air quality. To study the transport of the wildfire ...
On the uncertainties and dynamics of Pacific interannual and decadal climate variability and climate change
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-11-11)
Tropical and extratropical Pacific decadal climate variability substantially impact physical and biological systems in the Pacific Ocean and strongly influence global climate through teleconnection patterns. Current ...
An assessment of uncertainties and limitations in simulating tropical cyclone climatology and future changes
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-05-04)
The recent elevated North Atlantic hurricane activity has generated considerable interests in the interaction between tropical cyclones (TCs) and climate change. The possible connection between TCs and the changing climate ...
The effect of climate and aerosol on crop production: a case study of central Asia
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-07-10)
The effect of recent climate change in Central Asia poses a significant and potentially serious challenge to the region’s agricultural sector. An investigation of the aerosol-climate- crop yield correlation in this region ...
Understanding the mechanisms of dissolved oxygen trends and variability in the ocean
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-04-08)
A widely observed tracer in the field of oceanography is dissolved oxygen (O2). A tracer crucial to ocean biogeochemical cycles, O2 plays an active role in chemical processes, marine life, and ecosystems. Recent advances ...
